How did life and planets start??
Are you really this dumb or is it just an act for topix so you can try (and fail abysmally) winding people up?

I have already told you that life probably started with biogenesis but is really an unknown, I am comfortable with that fact and I am content that science is exploring that unknown. It seems you are not so settle for a guess based on bronze age Jew magic.

As for the planets, that’s far easier and is known. I assume that they don’t teach of gravity and accretion in your home school so you can always google “how did the planets form” and try educating yourself. As you said previously, you ask questions because you claim you want to learn... so learn

??? plagiarised what?

Come on clever (LOL) boy (LOL) out with it, tell the truth for a change. What?

And then after you have opened you heart to the truth then perhaps we can talk about the abuse and lies and degradation you vomit in the name of you god that I do considerably more than ignore, I highlight that you are an abusive moron

You plagiarising yourself or was it just a slip of the memory? I am told this sort of thing happens when you reach a certain age and you have not long left in this world.

Keep on smirking

Belligerency didn’t just show up at your door. It was carved into you during your upbringing. I’m not saying you are a bad person but probably you have spent a night or two in jail in your lifetime. I don’t think it’s something you can help. The examples set before you were probably not that good when you were growing up.
We all come from different backgrounds and family experiences. You are probably from a broken home environment. Alcoholism manifested itself in your immediate family and you yourself may have battled the demons. You may not intend to come across so abrasive but it just kind of comes out that way.
If I could surmise further. You didn’t finish High School. I would bet you worked pretty hard in your life to gather what few acorns you have. You have a very small number of friends because most don’t understand your callousness.
Your offense has caused me to ask what kind of person would be so uncouth? And it gave me a chance to see you in a different light. I think if you had been in a different environment growing up the outcome would be much different. May you find some peace and resolution in your life before it expires.[tipping hat]
All of this weak psychanalyzing performed to avoid the question of how many "gods" you believe exist?

So that's why you're mental. Example:

Deuteronomy 25:11-1: If two men are fighting and the wife of one of them comes to rescue her husband from his assailant, and she reaches out and seizes him by his private parts, you shall cut off her hand. Show her no pity.

I have been here for over two years. I’ve made it pretty clear how many Gods I believe in. I won’t bow down to your pungency type questioning. Your school yard bully tactics won’t work so try a different approach if you want to know.I can engage in a civil conversation but don’t try to bully me cause it won’t get you anywhere.

This is the first time I’ve seen this passage. And I want to thank you for bringing it up.

In today’s light when two men are engaged in a physical conflict it’s certainly not unheard of for a women to jump into the melee.

This type of action as referenced, squeezing the secret part of a man by a woman is extreme. And presents a unfair advantage. From the male perspective there’s no pain equivalent and it’s a game ender to say the least.

There’s some things in life you don’t do and one of those is for a women to come into a male combatant environment and tip the scales. There are other options at her disposal besides using the nuclear option.

And no man ever wants the nuclear option used on them.. If I had been the woman it would be time to send in the dog to level the playing field.

Don't be a hypocrite.

I can see you didn't even respond to what the posts states, and had to go on your own and just post something.
Are you afraid to answer the question? Here it is again, just in case you aren't....

The question was clumsily & ineptly asked. I’m not sure you have the aptitude to understand. If you did have the faculties to comprehend you wouldn’t be asking again. You might want to get someone to help you. Its ok you don’t have to get all embarrassed because you don’t know how to ask a question. Just try to get some help with it.
Diversion and projection.

I think you just choose not to answer because it goes against your current belief.

Don't put it back on me - for your inaccuracy and choice in being dishonest.

It really makes no difference to me as to how many "gods" you believe exist. We both know that thousands have come and gone since man had a desire to explain his existence with what little level of reasoning he had at the time. It is amazing that here in the 21st century, a "god" ("gods") is still relyed upon to explain that existence. SMH

If I was attacked, my wife would always back me up. Screw your backward views.

Of course in America you'd more likely shoot someone dead!

You are not being truthful are you.
Yes, I am speaking from experience. I used to have a speech impediment, but overcame it.
Homosexuals, on the other hand seem to acquire one. I'm simply asking why, since many atheists on here are gays. At this point it may or may not be off topic.
You can watch and learn.
Smile.
I'm very truthful.....I find being honest - although it can hurt at times, is the best mode of speech to take. So you are wrong again, with me not being truthful.

WOW!!
- "since many atheists on here are gays."

When you project - you really kick it off good, huh?

Citation please. Maybe some quotes by the Atheists will help support your claim.

I doubt there are many gay Atheists on this forum. That would be reaching.

Vent away KM.....I'm here for you.

Just think - it beats a priest or pastor telling you to 10 Hail Marys and an Our Father......I'll only require you to be honest.

Alright class....please open your Bible to page 1130 - here you will find a sort of a silly looking character and his story - "the trials of tribulations of waaasssuuup - an internet poster gone rogue".

Yes - he went rogue, and now you will find out how.

Please continue to read the context and don't pass judgment on him quite yet.....as we know he is a little slower in understanding than the rest of us.
